United we Stand!!

It was a busy day

Like any other Friday

People scattered or in crowd

Moving in and out

Friends chatting aloud

Without any doubt

Naive and unaware

Of the nefarious evil

Of the abominable scare

And it all ended in upheaval

The laughter washed out in blood

The romance lost in scream

By malice racing like a flood

When hatred wins over amity

Harmony is beclouded by enmity

Innocent lives are lost

Some dear ones depart

Paying this horrific cost

To vengeance, to a rageful heart

And we forget and move on

Like any other instance

 Coz nothing of ours is gone

May be just this once

Someday it could be me or you

So I have a promise to make

To forgive and to let go

A blunder or a mistake

To lend my hands when needed

To render mercy when pleaded

To kill the monster within me

Against hatred I shall combat

To spread peace and love

To be the serene white dove

And spread this message around

In unity we shall all someday bond!!

Anushree Dutta

Just a year back, on 22.07.2016, Munich (Germany) was shattered by a horrific incident and the peace and harmony of the city was ruined. Many innocent lives were lost to yet another incident, where hatred won over love, vengeance won over forgiveness, and violence won over peace. But there is always hope, and with this hope we all survive every day in love and happiness. This is my attempt to remember all those who lost their lives, with a heavy heart and teary eyes. Nevertheless, I will always hope for peace and prosperity to prevail in the World.

In Search of Me!!

In Search of me

 

One fine day

When I was kind of lost

In my mood grey

With my head so frost

I stepped out of me

In search of me

Unaware and heedless

I moved ahead, breathless

Gasping for air

Nothing could I foresee

In this ambiguous glare

Of this limelight

At this towering height

I made an honest plea

To myself

For mercy and help

To find where I was lost

To bring me back

In a hope to find me one day

This is what I pray…

My dearest companion Time

Stop racing

Stop pacing

Take a break for sometime

Let me live in this moment

Let me bask in the present

So ravishing

So enchanting

What is the hurry to go?

Just for a while, stop the flow!!

I try to walk

You always spurt

Why do you exert

It wouldn’t hurt

To wait for me

To match my pace

Just in case

To enjoy my company

For a while

With a smile

After all we are companions

For a lifetime!!

My dearest companion Time

Whenever I need you

You never there

When I am getting late

You stop being my mate

You start a race

Against me

Turning away your face

And on a contrary

You never hurry

When I wait to see my love

You never quickly pass

You leave me in a morass

To ever trust you

And yet you stay with me

In every moment I see

In my ecstasy and my agony

In my loss and my rise

You are my truest companion

As you stop the tick-tock

My breath gets forever locked

And they would then say

Alas, her time is over

It was her last day!!
